agent is unable to prevent the town's mayor from blowing up a new railroad trestle. West is assigned to work with agent
Frank Harper on the case. Harper arrives too late to prevent a museum official from slashing paintings and destroying
other artwork. President Grant departs Washington to personally brief the agents about the case, in which prominent
people inexplicably commit acts of destruction. West arrives just in time to stop a dedicated sheriff from releasing
a vicious gang from his jail. The sheriff, like the other prominent people involved, had received a free pair of spectacles
from a Dr. Occularis. It turns out there are at least two doctors dispensing the free spectacles. Harper takes the place
of a mayor who is scheduled for a visit from Dr. Occularis and he nearly kills West. The Secret Service man is captured
and is informed by Professor Toombs that a group called Raven is behind all this and it intends to rule the world
scientifically. West is then freed to pass an ultimatum to President Grant. As the episode ends, West has managed to
find Raven's headquarters and observes Tycho, the leader of Raven who has an enormous head.

agent, though, doesn't realize he has been programmed to assassinate the official -- and it appears he has done just that.
However, fellow agent Frank Harper disguised himself as the official and wore a bulletproof vest, enabling him to survive
the attack by the brainwashed West. Meanwhile, West bides his time, pretending to join Raven until he could find out more
about Raven leader Tycho who claims to know "all that ever was." Harper, meantime, and other agents research the background
of Raven's Professor Toombs. Harper disguises himself as Toombs' mentor, a disgraced German scientist. The agents try to
